Yesterday is history; tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present. (Bill Keane, American cartoonist)

Sounds like a cartoon caption, doesn’t it? But, maybe there’s more to it than we see at first. It’s true that we can’t relive the past; it’s all over. And we can only hope, plan, and pray about the future. That’s why today—right now—is the most important time in our lives. On the basis of what we’ve learned in the past and our hopes for the future, we make the most of every day.

So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today… Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Matthew 6:34; Hebrews 13:8)
